“Scott Goplin brings with him a wealth of enrollment management experience in private higher education, and his leadership will have a tremendous impact on both enrollment and retention results,” Dr. Badal says. “Tena Lawrence is moving into the new position of Vice President for Marketing following her work in re-building the admissions program.
